LUKE SHAW is loving life on and off the field, with the new father impressing for Manchester United and dreaming of a Euro 2020 call-up.
Life has rarely been straightforward since the big-money switch from Southampton in 2014, but the 24-year-old appears to be back on track after injuries and a testing spell out of the side under former boss Jose Mourinho.
Shaw (pictured) was last season’s player of the year at United and is arguably playing better at the moment.
Working well when deployed on the left of a back three in recent games, he looked solid when used as a more conventional full-back as Watford were downed 3-0 in the Premier League on Sunday.
‘I’m really enjoying it at the moment, and I’m happy to play anywhere the manager wants me to play,’ Shaw said.
‘I’m really enjoying that sort of left of the three but I’ll play anywhere and the most important thing is to help the team and to enjoy football.’
Shaw, who became a dad in November and says it is ‘best feeling in the world having a kid’, has silverware and Champions League qualification in his sights as United look to end the season with a bang.
And the youngest player of any nation to play at the 2014 World Cup, would also love to be involved in Gareth Southgate’s side at Euro 2020.
‘I’d be lying if I [said I] hadn’t thought about it, but I’ve got to keep working hard and whatever happens happens,’ added Shaw, who won the last of his eight England caps in September 2018.
‘It’s everyone’s dream to be involved in the Euros. It’s down to Gareth. I’ll respect what he decides.’
